Tiger mosquito is finally not yet a Netherlands resident

We published a post last week, saying that the tiger mosquito had installed itself in the Netherlands, but RIVM director Roel Coutinho told news agency ANP that ‘It is not true to say the mosquito has established itself here. They have been found in the Netherlands but they are not here to stay.’

Wageningen University mosquito expert Bart Knols told local broadcaster Omroep Brabant the mosquito is not yet a resident. However, he said it is very likely it will become one unless tough import rules are introduced.
